Almond And Quinoa Cookies Just 90 Calories Each

When you really fancy a cookie with your afternoon cuppa, it’s great to have some healthy options in the house.

Instead of a packaged biscuit, which tends to have far more sugar and calories than is ideal, these cookies are a much better choice.

As part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge we offer loads of options for healthy baking for your afternoon tea (or for the lunchbox). Think sweet potato bread, choc chip muffins, or healthy chia lemon biscuits.
